Aside from a strong resume, how important is a referral for KPMG? I’m eyeing a Power BI position within Deal Advisory & Strategy Analytics; however, I’m coming from the retail industry.

Currently, I have the Tableau Certified Assoc. certification and MSCA: BI Reporting. Any tips or advice for applying from outside the consulting industry? Thanks.
